You can also use whatever type of brownie mix you have on hand as long as it’s chocolate. I usually have Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix on hand but you can also use a plain chocolate brownie mix or a fudge chocolate brownie mix.

    What size pan.?

    1. I used a 9×9 as I wanted a thick brownie. A larger dish will just make the brownies less thick.

    Made these for our St. Patrick’s Day dinner. They were delicious.

    Baileys Brownies were a huge hit at the 4th of July cook-out. I would like to make them again, for myself. Question: Do they freeze well?

    1. Good question. I’ve never been in a situation where I needed to freeze brownies as they usually disappear pretty quickly. Since these brownies have a frosting it would be best to freeze before frosting. If that’s not an option I would either layer them using wax paper in an airtight container or wrap each brownie in plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container or freezer bag. I don’t think freezing will affect the flavor but might change the texture some.
